Angelo Gaja makes the most exciting wines in Italy. He has few equals in terms of his sheer determination and dedication to great winemaking. Years ago, Gaja transcended traditional, rustic Italian winemaking by making modern wines that appealed to sophisticated consumers around the world. Yet he preserved his wines’ unique Italian character.

Tasting Notes

95 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Gaja’s 1990 Barolo Sperss is a sweet, seamless beauty endowed with gorgeous fruit. The wine possesses superb inner perfume and purity even if it doesn’t quite reach the level of Gaja’s most successful wines in this vintage. Still, this is pure 1990 and pure Serralunga.

96 Points Jeb Dunnuck
The 1990 Angelo Gaja Barolo Sperss just continues to sing every time I’ve been lucky enough to drink a bottle, and this is a glorious Barolo drinking at point. Offering heavenly notes of rose petals, violets, exotic spices, and both red and black fruits, it’s silky and refined on the palate, with sweet tannins and a supple, sexy even, style. It has another 10-15 years ahead of it.
